Bristol Hippodrome to suspend performances until late AprilPosted on: 19 Mar 2020
The theatre will be closed until Sunday 26 April due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
After the official closure of all Ambassador Theatre Group venues in the UK was announced on Monday, it was confirmed yesterday that the Bristol Hippodrome would be suspending all performances for the next five weeks.
In a full statement released on social media, the Hippodrome team explained that "we know [the decision] will impact our employees, partners and companies who have been incredible over the past few weeks, but the health and safety of our communities is our priority."
The closure will disrupt a wide range of upcoming productions and performances, including The King and I, Les Miserables and the eagerly-awaited Bristol leg of Diversity's 2020 UK tour.
Ticket holders for any suspended shows will be contacted with a list of options regarding their bookings. The theatre team have asked for patience as they process a large number of orders, and will be working in chronological order to contact customers.
Customers with any specific queries can also fill out an online contact form, which the team will respond to as quickly as possible. Be sure to head to the Bristol Hippodrome Facebook page for ongoing news and updates.
